Built To Brag Pt. 1

A ninguén lle gusta contagotas de nome. Vostede sabe de quen estou falando. Aquelas persoas que quere saber que eles saben que a xente que probablemente vai querer saber. Cando eu penso "namedropper,"Hai un mozo que vén inmediatamente á mente. Só coñecín un puñado de veces, pero cada vez que falamos, metade da nosa conversa é retomada con gotas de nome flagrantes.

El sabe que un bo número de "big time" persoas, e ten unha capacidade absurda a esgueirar-se eses nomes en ningunha conversa. Aquí está un exemplo. eu digo, "Hey Man, que hora é?"A súa resposta: "Oh, it’s about noon. Reminds me of that time I played putt putt with Michael Jackson at noon in Paris.” Word?

honestamente, Non é só o nome contagotas que nos irritan aínda. É a xente que se gabam en xeral. Estivemos cansados ​​de homes auditivos crecendo gabar os seus días de fútbol da escola (é hora de seguir adiante, señor). We grow weary of our privileged friends that find some way to tweet about every exotic place they visit. E nós non teñen moita paciencia para as persoas que detalle a nós cada elemento caro que adquiren (a non ser que son rappers, por suposto). Se está secretamente gabar sobre quen coñece, ou descaradamente apuntando todas as súas realizacións, gabar só non é legal.

deixe vangloriando

Simplificando, vangloriar-se é "falar boastfully." E todos temos sido culpables de que nalgún momento. Isto sempre provoca un revirar os ollos cando os outros facelo - entón por que aínda tomar parte nela nos?

Vangloria pasa cando tes algo (ou facer algo) tan incrible que pensas que todo o mundo precisa saber sobre el. E non só precisan saber sobre el, precisan recoñecer como impresionante é por (ou facer) el. Ou tamén honestos con nós mesmos, nomeamos caída e humilde gabar aos nosos amigos porque pensamos que nos fai mirar bo. E é precisamente por iso que é malo.

O problema non é que o que se está gabándose non é grande. pode ser. O problema é que o obxectivo final non é tan grande. O que se fai en prol da gloria persoal é pecado.

Escritura fala moi fortemente sobre este tipo de conversación prepotente. Un exemplo é nas 1 Corinthians 4:7, en que Galicia pregunta, "O que ten que non recibiu? E se o recibiu, por que te glorias, como se non o fixo?"Está basicamente dicindo, "Todo o que ten lle deu. Entón, por que ía gabar cando todo o que fixo foi aceptar un presente?"

Cada palabra que pronunciamos prepotente é un tiro volto directamente ao noso Creador. Cada cousa boa vén Del, o que significa que ningún de nós pode tomar o crédito para el. Toda a gloria no universo pertence a Deus, pero estamos constantemente a tentar manter algún para nós mesmos. No mundo académico, tomando crédito para alguén do traballo chámase plaxio. No mundo real, el chámase gabar.

Comezar vangloriando

Ben, iso resolve-lo, a continuación,, dereito? nin, nunca me gabar!

Eu non creo que é tan sinxelo. Non só eu creo que ten que gabar, por veces,, Creo que é o que foi creado para facer. Deixe-me explicar.

lembrar, a raíz gabar está a pensar algo que ten é tan sorprendente que todo o mundo precisa saber sobre el. Aqueles de nós que xa foron redimidos por Xesús ten algo para gabar - o propio Deus. Se coñecemos a Deus, debemos ser tan deslumbrado por El que nos sentimos compelidos a proclamar a súa excelencias para os outros (1 pet. 2:9). El é moi grande para manter a nós mesmos. Jeremiah 9:23-24 resume ben.

Isto é o que o Señor di:
"Non deixe o home sabio presumir de súa sabedoría
ou o home forte gabar-se de súa forza
ou o home rico gabar-se das súas riquezas,
e aquel que se gloriar, Glories sobre este:
que entende e me coñece,
que eu son o Señor, que exerce a bondade,
xuízo e xustiza na terra,
porque estas cousas me deleitarse,"
declares the Lord.

Se coñecer a Deus, Eu quero que me gabar. Pero cando fai, don’t let it be in seu sabedoría, ou seu strength, ou seu riches. en vez, gabar súa. Gabar-se no feito de que vostede sabe o que con sabedoría perfecta, forza todopoderoso, e nunca rematando riquezas da graza. No canto de usar as súas palabras para adquirir a súa propia fama, usalos para mostrar a súa.

O Universo é como unha vitrina para a gloria de Deus. A Terra foi creada para dar a coñecer o seu poder. Árbores foron formados para amosar a súa beleza. Os animais foron creados para ligar a súa grandeza. e? Foi construído para gabar sobre el. Entón, se deixar caer un nome, Que sexa o seu.

    Thanks Trip. This is a really good point. Our personal achievements compared to God’s never ending grace are worthless. Let’s starting bragging about our Lord and Savior!

    HEY TRIP!!!

    I have something HUGE to share with you!! así, I follow these two 18 year old Christians on YouTube, Instagram&Twitter and A MONTH and TWO DAYS ago, they said that they were told by God to leave NC and go to Los Angeles. They arrived yesterday!!!! GREATEST PART?!! They left NC with SIXTEEN dollars, a back pack and their faith and started WALKING!!! Along the way, they were given bikes, then food, shelter, rides &finances to help on their journey. And they didn’t even ask for it!!!!! People would just come up to them and give. Like they could see the spirit of God all over them!! They recorded vids on the way on YouTube and posted photos on Instagram and they keep us up to date on their twitter as well. Their YouTube hasn’t been updated in a week but they still have MARVELOUS testimonies shared on there from throughout the journey and they update their twitter and Instagram almost DAILY. Just wanted to spread this with you so that you could spread this great news of Faith. Maybe you can even get in contact with them and TRY THEIR SPIRITS. These men of God are legit. AMAZING TESTIMONIES. Lets spread the good news!

    Yes as God’s children we are built to brag about His awesome power, amor, mercy and especially His grace. The Lord says, If any man boasts let Him boasts in the Lord. The word Swag means also to boast or brag which is a prideful thing to do when you make it all about you. When it comes to swag, the world sets the standard, they tell people whats the trend or what is cool or not. Being a Christian is not the most popular thing to be in society these days, but it surely is the most vital. As a Christian its perfect for us to have swag, the best swag, and thats a Godly Swagg which simply means to boast in the Lord God. In our walk, our talk, and through our music we boast and brag on the Lord Jesus Christ because through the cross we have become products of His Grace and it is our life’s mission to win more souls through the preaching of the Gospel of grace.

    Absolutely agree with you! I never thought of being “construído para gabar” but you definitely convinced me. I very much enjoy reading your writing. Incredibly thought provoking but balanced with encouragement. Perfect mixture of the two!! Thanks for writing.

    Great thought provoking read Mr. viaxe. Many can take this to heart, and now into practice. Keep using the gifts God has given you, which now includes being a pretty great writer, and continue to share the message with those giftsit is reaching more than you’ll ever know.

    I often do this; brag. It’s more a reflection of the pride we keep on top of our softened hearts. For some reason giving God the glory in front of non-believers can be difficult but only because of pride.
    Recently I scored very high when I re-took the ASVAB. I was so excited because I knew God had helped me do it. His favor was what gave me that score and the knowledge He put in me helped me to truly understand mathematical equations I never could comprehend before. Yet when I got back to my unit I told everyone what I got with excitement but later I felt convicted because I knew I’d only told those I knew were believers that it was all God. The unbelievers I never told my testimony.
    I do jail ministry on Sundays and it’s weird because when I’m in front of them I could care less if they think I’m a fanatic then when I’m at work I hardly ever bring up the name. Everyone knows I’m a Christian but none of them have any clue how He’s all that’s on my mind 24/7.
    I’ll work on this. Thanks for sharing.

    viaxe , God Bless you man !
    This was needed as a reminder and for that I thank you, allowing God to use you to minister. We defiantly have the best thing to brag about.

  17. BrantPhelpsresponder

    That’s good stuff, viaxe… Everything we have was given to us by an Outstanding and Awesome Creator God who’s worth bragging about!

  18. Isaacresponder

    I am so amazed at the way you inter-related the old and new testatment to help us understand the danger of braging on ourselves!! Is this the inspiration for your recent trackBrangin on my God”???

    I love your music coz its so relevant!! God bless you!! Keep up the good work!!

    Remember the homeless Christians I told you guys about? They need help.. Any help would be great guys. God will provide but even Jesus couldn’t do works where there was no faith. Everyone in LA is turning their backs because of their lack of faith. Lets support the kingdom and give what we can. They also do music and the Spirit really speaks in their lyrics. Lets spread that as well! We do this for the kingdom y’all. email livin4christ4lyfe@gmail.com .. Lets help the brethren. Love you all.
